We are all broken. That’s how the light gets in.
No one goes through life unscathed. We can only grow and evolve if we experience a variety of things we like and don’t like. Having bad experiences allows us to identify what a good one is. It allows us to appreciate it. So perspective helps us see a moment for the life lesson that it is, and hindsight lets us realise that most things are just a tiny speck on our life’s journey.
We have contrasting experiences to help us define our desires.
